AMBER ALERT!!!!!! 7 yr old girl just taken in Waverly silver pick up truck license plate 72B381..forward to everyone u know now please!!!
from a 901 phone number, Monday, February 16, 10:41 PM

The problem is, there are so many text message hoaxes that I really have trouble taking this message seriously. It might
be for real, but the odds are so stacked against it that, if I saw a silver pick-up truck sporting this license plate, I don't even know that I would do anything about it. Also, I just looked it up, and I couldn't find a listing for this Amber Alert. Is it sad that I have so little faith in people's truthfulness?
